"Scar Arias is a five-song cycle work by composer Ricardo Romaneiro for chamber ensemble, electronics, and written for soprano Mellissa Hughes with words by Christopher CahillElectronic ambient soundscapes orchestrated and mixed with acoustic instruments weaves the listener on a kaleidoscopic and contemplative journey of sound and poetry. Fluid vocals lines are embellished by musical tone paintings through live electronic manipulations of the voice.
